Chico Cottage is situated in Morcombelake, a small hillside village in West Dorset between Bridport and Lyme Regis, 1 mile inland from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast.
This beautiful little cottage, parts of which date back to the 18th Century, is tucked away in a quiet spot on the southern slope of Hardown Hill and looks out over rolling hills down to Golden Cap (the highest cliff on the south coast of England) and the sea.
Sympathetically renovated and refurbished to a very high standard, the property has much character and charm and boasts oak beams, a large inglenook fireplace with wood and coal burning stove, oak doors, oak and terracotta floors. An attractive, terraced garden to the rear includes a delightful sundeck and sunhouse which take advantage of the south facing position and fabulous views.
The surrounding hills, countryside and coastline are a haven for walkers with many footpaths and bridleways and with spectacular views of Golden Cap, the coast and Portland. The whole area is classified as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and significant tracts are owned by the National Trust. The South West Coast Path is within a few minutes walk of the cottage and beaches at Charmouth and Chideock are about 2 miles away.
There is a regular bus service within a 5 minutes walk, going to Charmouth, Lyme Regis and Axminster to the west and to Bridport, Dorchester and Weymouth to the east. There is a small general store and Post Office in the village, together with a farm shop serving light refreshments and the well known Moore's biscuit shop. Further shops, pubs and eating places are available in Charmouth, Chideock and further afield in Lyme Regis and Bridport.
Chico Cottage provides a high quality, wonderfully relaxing country retreat for couples, set in beautiful countryside close to the West Dorset World Heritage Coast, the port and town of Lyme Regis and the market town of Bridport.
Charmouth 2 miles, Lyme Regis 5 miles, Bridport 4 miles.
Please note: The cottage is accessed via a fairly narrow private lane and care must be exercised with larger vehicles. A maximum of one dog is accepted.
